Slip right on without cutting off the circulation to my calves. Light weight. Thin, but in a good way. Durable.
Took them out for paintball and they were.so much better than my old empire knee pads. I played like 4 games before I realized that I never had to readjust them once. 1 suggestion is that the should make a pair that are longer because I am tall(6'9") and it would match my legs better. Other than that I found my forever knee pads.
Hydra Black Knee Pads
So far I have used my Hydra knee pads 2 times, once for a day of reffing the other for a day of playing. From the time I put them on to make sure they fit I could tell these were completely different from any other PB knee pad; most notably they stayed in place comfortably without limiting flexibility. My only concern was they have much thinner padding than other pads, would they work? Absolutely they did! They fit much better under the jogger style pant, they give at least as much impact protection, they are more comfortable/and flexible, and they didn't need to be adjusted in a warm and sweaty 3 hour session!
I couldn't be happier with them
Got a turf burn due to them slidding down after 30 to 45 into playing my points
Cushion without the bulk. And they do not slide down your leg.
I needed pads with great knee support and enough padding to stand up to kneeling on sticks and rocks. With these I haven't had any problems what so ever. Great breathable pads.
I ordered the XL as I was right on the L-XL border. Fit very well doesn’t move around and considerably decreased my knee pain after playing. Excellent product and they shipped really quickly. Well done.
These provide the perfect amount of padding and protection with not a lot of bulk. I have worn them all day for practice and tournament play and forget that I have them on.
Hydra Black Knee Pads
I was a fool to wait for so long. These knee pads are amazing.
Great pair of knee pads!
1st pads I've owned that actually supports my knees, doesn't slip down. Great pads.
They work great they comfortable I use them for work every day, Home improvement around the house and of course paintball
Hands down, these are the most comfortable knee pads in Paintball. So happy with my purchase.
Empire Mega Lite 80cu 4.5k
Just got these in figure id wear em out hunting to get them broken in. Comfortable, brethable and didnt even notice they were on half the time. Highly recomend
I owned the old Empire knee pads that were super slim back in the mid 2000’s and have been searching for a close model to that again. Hydra nailed it. The perfect amount of padding with a low profile look.
These knee pads are the best I've worn. Great fit and don't slide down and plenty of support and protection
I have been playing paintball for over 10 years and finally found a pair that can keep up with the sport.
They’re comfortable, supportive, and tear resistant.
What more do you want?!
Excellent knee pads that are both soft and durable!
These are the best knee pads I have ever worn. They fit great thanks to the different sizes you can get. They don’t fall down and they are super comfortable and padded. Will definitely be trying to get my team to get a pair.
Best pants I’ve e dr purchased
Fit well, but be careful not to just toss them in your gearbag. One pad was stored in my bag for 2 weeks and is already creased, it doesn't seem to want to bounce back into shape. There is no padding anymore at that crease.
